The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an informal week in review
gathering place for bloggers.
It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by

Happy SUNDAY Everyone!
I took the day off yesterday to watch my grandson in a flag football tournament. It was chilly and windy, so much so that us spectators faces are still red with a little windburn but it was a wonderful day. This was not a school event but a recreation program that has grown by leaps and bounds since my own children participated. On 4 small fields the first and second graders along with the 3rd and 4th graders played true flag football, each alternating the fields, across the the way the 5th and 6th graders were suited up for a little more contact type of football and even a little way beyond us the were more kids playing soccer. No trophies were given out for anything and the kids were all having a great time and so were the adults. Us adults were cold but the kids kept plenty warm running up and down the fields. Kids of all abilities were playing together, each taking turns in a fair way so everyone has equal playing time. Both sides were cheered on from the sidelines. Oh and both girls and boys were playing together. There was no discrimination by gender or talent. These kids played together and there were winners and losers and while the scores were recorded that was not the focus of the day. The focus of the day was having fun and teaching skills not only needed for football but life. With what has happened in the political world this past week, and from one candidate in particular since the campaign began, it was a breath of fresh air to see these events yesterday. We have a great country where our children learn not just in school, but in recreation programs and by the examples they see around them. The coaches are all volunteer and have a passion in seeing the kids succeed. Is that what we all want? In a times when school budgets have been cut and programs cancelled what I witnessed yesterday was just a small example of what people can do for the good of others and I was very proud of the possibilities my small home town offers.
